OMD unveils new investment leadership structure

OMD has a new structure for its Sydney office, with the appointment of dual head of investment leads.

Jane Combes, who has been investment lead on Telstra, has been promoted to join current Sydney head of investment, Marelle Salib, in the role.

Combes has over 15 years media experience

OMD said the function now required two leaders due to significant client growth in the Sydney office over the past 12 months, including Suncorp, Activisation and The Form.

“The dual approach reflects OMD’s commitment to deliver a sustainable structure that continues to provide the right level of coverage and leadership for our clients,” the agency said in a statement.

The duo will be responsible for developing the OMD Sydney investment offering, and will split responsibilities across the Sydney client teams. They will report into OMD’s national chief investment officer, Melissa Hey.

Salib joined OMD in 2011

Hey added: “As the agency grows, we need to be set up for the future to ensure we have the investment bench strength to cover our growing client portfolio. Marelle and Jane are the perfect duo to achieve this and will deliver the right level of leadership for our clients and support for our OMD teams.”
